If you read my September reveal you might remember that I was missing a couple items. After contacting Lit Cube, they rectified the error and sent me my missing items! It was a candle and some lip gloss:
Both of them smell amazing!!! The candle is Apple Cinnamon Donuts. Think Sugar Cookie smell meets Apple Cider smell. The Lip Balm smells straight up like Apple Cider. I am super glad I realized I was missing items because I really like both of these!
Now for October’s box:
Here is the theme reveal e-mail I received:
First Impressions? Its October, of course they are going to do a Halloween theme. This one sounds pretty cool, and I am glad it is not a horror theme because I don’t do scary stuff. I’m disappointed to see that the book has a Picture of Dorian Gray vibe because I hated that book. Overall I’m excited for the box.
Last month I complained that the inside of the box was designed to be “Apple Spice and Everything Nice.” I said I would rather they spend their time and money on the items inside the box and not the box design. I need to re-tract my statement because the box is the same this month as it was last month. I apologize for my brash negativity.
The first thing in the box was a card:
I made the mistake of reading the back of the card before looking through the box. The card is just a list of what is in the box and what everything is worth. If there was one of these in the September box I didn’t get it. It would have been nice because then I would have known what I was missing.
Going in the order of the card, first up is the book:
This doesn’t sound quite as bad as The Picture of Dorian Gray but I’m not sure I will like it. I will attempt to read it and will write a review. (I know, I know I still owe you September’s review. I’m about halfway done with the book and liking it a lot so far!)
Next are the bookmarks:
These are super fun, but I don’t know how well they work … they barely stretch to cover a regular size paperback, and it kind of bends the book. I think they will work better for a romance novel size book, or maybe if I keep using them with bigger books they will stretch out a little?
Next up is a necklace:
I like it but I don’t wear a lot of jewelry, and I don’t really have an occasion to wear this. It doesn’t fit my normal style but I am going out tonight; maybe I can find a shirt to wear it with?
The final two items go together:
The wax melter thing is super cute, but I am a little confused to its purpose. You need a t-light in order to heat and melt the wax, but I thought the point of melting wax was so that you didn’t have an open flame? The wax melts are shaped like sugar skulls. I couldn’t smell them through the packaging and don’t want to open them until I go buy a t-light to try it all out.
Finally there was a Kit Kat and some other piece of candy I haven’t tried yet. Here is the full loot:
Overall I like the box!! Can’t wait for next month’s! I will try to take cool pictures like everyone else does haha. I realize my pics are kind of lame. Next Month’s theme is “Passport to Scotland” which sounds super cool!
I found out that I can get a $10 referral reward if I get anyone to sign up! So if you want 15% off your first box, and if you don’t mind me profiting from it, then pretty please use this link:
